Philip Seymour Hoffman 7/23/67 – 2/2/14

February 2, 2014

I think you should be serious about what you do because this is it. This is the only life you’ve got.

If you’re a human being walking the earth, you’re weird, you’re strange, you’re psychologically challenged. Philip Seymour Hoffman (July 23, 1967 – February 2, 2014)

guest blog post

Such a talented man.

The range of roles for one so young is breathtaking.

He will be greatly missed.

His  long, long list of movie roles include:

Capote
Scent of a Woman
Hard Eight
Nobody’s Fool
Boogie Nights
The Big Labowski
Magnolia
The Talented Mr. Ripley
State and Main
Almost Famous
The Savages
Charlie Wilson’s War
Doubt
Jack Goes Boating
The Master
The Ides of March
The Hunger Games


In his own words:

I didn’t go out looking for negative characters; I went out looking for people who have a struggle and a fight to tackle. That’s what interests me.

In life, do you ever really know if you’re missing an opportunity? No, you really don’t.

My soul is in good shape.

To act well isn’t an easy thing.
Sometimes I’m uncomfortable with the level of fame I’ve got! It all depends on the day and what’s going on. I don’t desire any more fame. I don’t need it.
My love for the theater has always been a priority. That hasn’t changed. I got into acting that way. The film work that came up was really a surprise.
I have so much empathy for these young actors that are 19 and all of a sudden they’re beautiful and famous and rich. I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I’d be dead.’
Actors are investigators.

Rest in Peace, Philip Seymour Hoffman

    Yes…so sad. (And you’re welcome! Thanks for stopping by and commenting! What I really wanted to finish writing was a blog post on Chinese New year but this superceded it somehow…)
